What’s coming soon to Disney+ UK in March 2021?
James R | On 19, Feb 2021
Disney’s Netflix rival is here, serving up Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar originals, along with a post-modern revamp of High School Musical and almost every episode of The Simpsons.
Disney+ stepped up its streaming game last month with the launch of its new adult-friendly brand Star, providing a home to many Fox and Hulu titles. With the House of Mouse now firing on two cylinders, March’s line-up is a stuffed one. New family-friendly content is primarily limited to the debut of Marvel’s next series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (with a week’s breathing space after WandaVision’s finale), the revival of The Mighty Ducks and the Mulan-style Premier Access release of Raya and the Last Dragon.
The rest of the month comprises Star additions from Fox and Hulu that originally aired in the USA over the past couple of years, although there’s the notable arrival of films Can You Ever Forgive Me? and – for those wondering where the series was last month when Star launched – Taken and Taken 2.
Here’s what’s coming to Disney+ in March 2021:
Raya and the Last Dragon (Premier Access) – 5th March
Raya and the Last Dragon travels to the fantasy world of Kumandra, where humans and dragons lived together long ago in harmony. But when an evil force threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, that same evil has returned and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the legendary last dragon to restore the fractured land and its divided people. However, along her journey, she’ll learn that it’ll take more than a dragon to save the world—it’s going to take trust and teamwork as well. Available with a £19.99 one-off early access fee. (The film will later be added to Disney+ for all regular subscribers from 4th June at no additional cost.)

With the help of Gordon Bombay, they rediscover the joys of playing just for love of the game.
